Rotondo says he spent the weekend getting ready to move by going to Lowe’s to buy boxes for packing. 

He says he was offered free packing supplies by a good Samaritan, but turned her down – saying it didn’t feel right.

Rotondo says he’ll move everything into a self-storage unit, and then look for a place.  

Last week, Rotondo flew to Texas for an hour-long interview with Info Wars’ Alex Jones.

The right-wing conspiracy theorist ‘made it possible’ for the millennial to move out with the help of a $3,000 check, Rotondo.

On Monday, Rotondo revealed he’s heartbroken because he’s been unable to see his son. 

He told DailyMail.com that he was misdiagnosed with schizophrenia and that he can’t see his eight-year-old son because no one is willing to supervise the visits.

The boy’s mother said she feared that the decision to kick Rotondo out of his parents’ home would send him off the rails.

She predicted that his mental condition could deteriorate if he has to fend for himself – but Rotondo has claimed while he has a history of mental health problems, he was misdiagnosed with schizophrenia.

‘I blame that doctor that diagnosed me with just trying to make a steady source of work for himself,’ Rotondo told DailyMail.com when questioned about his schizophrenia diagnosis.

He added: ‘So I’m denying that I was not now nor have I ever been a paranoid schizophrenic.’

Rotondo’s case has gained worldwide attention after his parents Mark and Christina Rotondo took him to court last week to have him evicted from their four-bedroom house in Camillus, New York, a quiet commuter town just west of Syracuse.

In a previous interview with DailyMail.com on the driveway of the family home, Rotondo said his problems with his parents really began when he lost contact with his son. 

The last time he saw him was September 26 last year, both sides agree.

‘It’s very hard to describe what that’s like. I saw him three days a week and in the summer time it would be all day, 11-8.30,’ he said. ‘He was my whole world. My life was characterized by the days I saw him.’

He said he cannot get a job because he needs to focus his entire energy on getting his son back.

Rotondo represented himself in the eviction case as he has done in child custody matters and in a federal 2015 suit against his former employer, Best Buy, who he sued for $330,000.

His parents succeeded in getting Judge Donald Greenwood to allow them to evict him, saying he needed to get out and find work.

The couple want him to get a job and health insurance. They even offered to pay for the insurance, but he said he had to refuse because it would deny him the ability to file court motions as a poor person without paying court fees.

Michael Rotondo believes his mother and father are being unreasonable.

‘I would say it is not a significant burden on my parents because they never really gave me money,’ he told DailyMail.com. ‘It was just food and housing.

‘But they weren’t paying for anything else – except for electricity and hot water and things like that.

‘I wouldn’t describe it as burdensome that they have to provide hot water and electricity and food because their son is trying to be the father to his child.

The parents wrote five typed notes to their son, starting on February 2, telling him he had to leave.

In the first they told him: ‘You have 14 days to vacate. You will not be allowed to return. We will take whatever actions are necessary to enforce this decision.’

Eleven days later they sent him a second saying: ‘You are hereby evicted… You have heretofore been out guest and there is no lease or agreement that gives you any right to stay here without our consent.’

This time they gave him 30 days to get out.

Five days later they send a third note along with $1,100 ‘so you can find a place to stay’, and gave him advice on how he should make money by selling off his possessions – including ‘any weapons you may have’ – and getting a job.

On March 5, they said they would have to throw out his property if he did not remove it within 11 days.

The final note, dated March 30, ordered him to get his Volkswagen Passat out of their driveway.
